Here’s the scenario:
Sue emails Barbara and asks if she’s free for lunch any day the following week. Sue tells her that 12 noon would be ideal and she’s been craving to go to one of their mutually enjoyed and well-frequented lunch spots.
Barbara does not respond to the email. However, the next day, sends Sue a link to groupon type deal to a different location, with a subject line of “A gift from Barbara” and a message that says: “Dear Sue, How about lunch? You name the day and time. Love, Barbara”
Do you find it annoying that Barbara did not respond to the original email? Or does Sue need to chill out and have fun at a free lunch!

@oracle: I would be a bit confused as to the lack of response and then complete direction change with a new place and a message seeming like you hadn’t talked about lunch recently.
But honestly I’d just let it go and enjoy the free lunch.

@oracle: I think, to quote you- Sue needs to chill out. Emailing with the deal was Barbara’s way of responding.

I would find it odd that Barbara didn’t make any mention of the previous convo in her email, so, if I were Sue, I would be confused, but let it go, pick a later lunch date, and enjoy the free lunch.

I would be confused. To me it sounds like it’s time to pick up the phone to see what’s up.

That would annoy me a little… but I would get over it and enjoy the free lunch. 🙂
